Join a lovable group of children in a delightful romp through an explanation of diversity, understanding it better, encouraging them to be compassionate towards others, regardless of who they are.
Many kids today face bullying from their peers based on differences in race, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.
In a world where bullying and intolerance of diversity is becoming increasingly a problem, it’s important to teach children – and adults – compassion for others.
This book was written to inspire kids (and the adults who read it with kids) who are bullied for being different without focusing too strongly on the bullying angle.

A Small Gem
“Author and activist Christina Engela’s ‘Other Kids are Kids Almost Just Like You’ is a small gem, a humorous, non-didactic children’s book that sings the joys of difference, whether it be race, sexual orientation or just the pride of individuality. ‘Other Kids’ teaches a gentle lesson about the serious issue of bullying. Nobody works harder to combat transphobia, homophobia and the douchebaggery of the radical ‘Christian’ right than Christina Engela. I thought I had trolls – imagine being sandbagged by an entire gang of hatemongers for Jesus. Yet in true karmic fashion, the locusts swarmed only to reinforce the point Christina makes in her excellent new children’s book, over which they had descended. With beautiful illustrations by Amanda M. Lyons and a powerful, humor-infused message to kids: it’s not only ok to be different, it’s brilliant.” – Alex S. Johnson, Author of ‘The Doom Hippies’.
I Would Recommend It
“Excellent tool to teach children to accept people who are different. I would recommend it to anyone who has children and is against bullying.” – Customer, Barnes & Nobel.
